2S4Y

Happy Wednesday! I just finished watching Twilight. Man, I love that Edward Cullen!! I feel like such a cougar. :) (Yes, I got up and started watching it at 5:30 while I worked on a project. If you know me, you know that early mornings are my creative time.) Anyway, I've read the first 3 books and now I've seen the movie. I'm officially hooked!

Here is my 2 Sketches 4 You card for the week. I made the panel on the right side by stampng and embossing with clear powder. Then I spritzed Tiger Lily Glimmer Mist onto it and wiped it off. Glimmer Mists work so well on resists. I had wanted to post this card for the Moxie Fab stamping celebration, but I was too late. Oh well.
The stamps are close to My Heart and the cute flowers are K and Co.




This next card is the one I made for the MMM blog this week. I created the flowers using newspaper and Glimmer Mist. Head over to the blog if you'd like to see the tutorial on how I made it.




Finally, keeping exciting news under wraps is really hard for me. So, though I'm itching to spill the beans on something fun that I'm going to be doing, I can't reveal it quite yet. Hopefully, I can share by the end of the week!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
